From The Liberty Papers on Ron Paul’s election chances:
Iâ€™m going to support Ron Paul for as long as heâ€™s in the field. I have my concerns about a few of his positions, but he is far and away better than any other Republican or Democrat currently under discussion. Most candidates will force us to hold our noses simply to keep from retching if we vote for them; Ron Paulâ€™s odorous positions are like mild B.O. in comparison. If heâ€™s running when the primaries come to my state, Iâ€™ll vote for Paul. If he manages to secure the nomination, Iâ€™ll vote for him in the general election. And Iâ€™m not doing so simply to vote for the â€œbestâ€ Republican over other Republicans, because I will likely vote Libertarian if Ron Paul is out of the race. Iâ€™d rather vote for Ron Paul, a 95% libertarian running as a Republican, than vote for a 100% Libertarian Party candidate who doesnâ€™t have a chance of even being invited to the debates.
I’d have to agree with this. I have a tough time with his hard stand on immigration, but I can live with it. If we’d stop giving our country away we wouldn’t have to worry about immigration. The people who want to work and succeed would come here and thrive. The others would starve or go home.
